New ET interview with Peter Facinelli
ET: What will we learn about Dr. Carlisle Cullen in ‘Eclipse’?
Peter Facinelli: You get to see a side of Carlisle you haven’t seen before. There are some great battle sequences.
ET: Any word on ‘Breaking Dawn’?
Peter Facinelli: I don’t know. Usually, the fans know before we do.
ET: Did you ever think that ‘Twilight’ was going to do so much for your career?
Peter Facinelli: The fan base has been so phenomenal. When you go to an event, people have flown in from other countries just to take a picture with you. That is a loyal fan base that you can’t even imagine having. I am thankful for all of them. That is why I try to give back in connecting with them [on Twitter].
ET: What kind of doctor is Carlisle?
Peter Facinelli: Carlisle is the head of the hospital. He is great because he has been around so long, he is very educated. He has a real love for humanity. People always ask me what kind of research I did to play a vampire. I said I did very little because I play a vampire who is trying to be human, who loved humanity so much that he wanted to hold on to that. When you look at something like ‘Twilight,’ the good vampires are not necessarily good; they’re eccentric. The bad vampires are just doing what they’re born to do. So for me, Carlisle is just holding on to his humanity; he doesn’t want to be a vampire.

I have never thought about what kind of specialty Dr. Cullen would practice. That was a good question.
